California Fish Passage Forum


                  CFPF logo    

The mission of the Fish Passage Forum is to protect and restore listed anadromous salmonid species, and other aquatic organisms, in California by promoting collaboration among public and private sectors for fish passage improvement projects and programs.

 

The goal of the Forum is to restore connectivity of freshwater habitats throughout the historic range of anadromous fish.

 

The Forum coordinates among agency programs and private sector activities to target high priority projects and to improve the timeliness and cost-effectiveness of fish passage.

 

The Forum seeks to:salmon

  1. Remediate barriers to effective fish migration.
  2. Facilitate coordination and communication among agencies, agency staff, and other entities that may propose, review, or promulgate fish passage criteria within California.
  3. Identify, assess and prioritize the removal of fish passage barriers.
  4. Disseminate guidelines and design criteria for replacement of barriers.
  5. Coordinate funding mechanisms to remove fish passage barriers.
  6. Promote state and federal permit coordination and efficiencies.
  7. Facilitate plans to monitor and evaluate fish passage restoration effectiveness to ensure accountability.
  8. Promote existing state and national policy and actions that support fish passage improvement in California.
  9. Implement education and outreach activities, targeting both the general public and fish passage practitioners.
